Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.
Is damage of a building preventable even considering a catastrophic earthquake event?
In this project we could delve into considered a large earthquake, is there a way to avoid collapse, and even damage altogether. How? (Preferred: any coding experience, Calculus, Physics.)
Structural Protective Systems
Strucutral protective systems that reduce the damage in the buildings and look into the benefits of such systems such as Damper devices and Isolation systems. (Preferred: any coding experience, some Calculus, Physics.)
Analyzing Impacts to Structures
In this project researching methods of mitigating impacts to structures whether it is from structural systems or the design of the structure. (Preferred: any coding experience, Calculus, Physics.)
